Bring your usual charger, buy an inexpensive 110V inverter that uses battery clips (large alligator clips) to connect to a battery. If you can't find one packaged that way, you can get the clips at Radio Shack or auto parts stores.
Hook up your inverter to the boat's 12v battery, it will have at least one if it is ready to go to sea at all.
Simple done deal.
Or, check out some of the portable cell phone chargers, look for one that uses 2xAA cells or similar and has multiple charger tips with one for Blackberry. You'll get one full charge, maybe two, from two AA cells or whatever similar it takes, so a handful of those will get you home most simply. Those chargers run $15-25.
Or, can't you just get a second battery for the Blackberry, charge it up at home and take it along? And just power up for ten minutes a half dozen times a day?
